"Versatility," Marcus Wainwright said, tongue in cheek. "Buy-now-wear-now."
He was making light called of what he called the "clichés of the pre-fall season," but in fact, Rag & Bone's latest effort was all about that kind of wearability.
Along with his design partner, David Neville, Wainwright focused on interpreting cooler-weather silhouettes in lightweight fabrics.
Witness a tailored blazer done in an ultrafine see-through wool and a creamy suede bomber jacket that's virtually weightless.
Texture was also important; most garments comprised multiple materials. A black leather tank, for example, featured a sheer jersey back, while a breezy charmeuse frock—printed with a Japanese inkblot motif—had a pleasing hang thanks to cotton lining.
